Review: “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”

Speechless. Spectacular. Incredible. Stunning. Perfect. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is all of that and more. It’s a phenomenon. In a good and pleasant way.
You would think that is stupid or whatever, (but yes, I’m emotional), I cried throughout the film. I like movies that can cause a different emotion in me. And this one did. I felt hopeless. That’s why I cried. I felt hopeless and lost, and heartbroken. But excited at the same time.

I read the books, and even though I didn’t loooove the trilogy, the second book written by Suzanne Collins captivated me. And it was perfect. Perfect adapted. Perfect director. Perfect cast. Perfect acting from all of them. And I loved the fact that in the trailer of this film is not like, “Oscar Winner… Jennifer Lawrence,” This movie captivates and is a attention seeker by itself. It was perfect. I can’t explain how stunning it was. I’ve watched two times in less than 24 hours. (I’m actually proud of myself).

In this second stallment of The Hunger Games Trilogy, Katniss and Peeta must return to the Quarter Quell, where each victor from past Hunger Games from each district, must fight in the Games, again.

If you haven’t seen it, which I highly doubt, go watch it like 2,000 times more. Because it’s worth it, and beautiful. The cast is pure perfection.

10 out of 10 stars!! (Because is my favorite movie since Harry Potter)

“The Future Belongs To Those Who Know Where They Belong”

OH MY GOODNESS! I. AM. DYING. OVER. HERE.

When the first trailer came out I thought that it was a good adaptation of Roth’s book. I loved the first trailer until the end came up. Thinking about the people that haven’t read the book, they wouldn’t understand. But this…THIS is a good book-to-movie-adaptation. And I’m so happy to see that everything I read, (in one of the best dystopian trilogies I’ve EVER read in my life), is brought to life. With good action, good cast and an amazing story that leaves you wanting more.

As Shailene Woodley said, the world of Divergent is giant. And there is so much to tell in the book, and in 2 minutes and a half, Neil Burger proved that he could take a not-high-budget-movie and turn into something incredible. This trailer just leaves me wanting to watch the movie even more. And to those of you who doesn’t know what Divergent is about, I leave all of you the summary:

In Beatrice Prior’s dystopian Chicago world, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue—Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is—she can’t have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

There you go, and I hope with all my heart that watching this trailer you’ll realize that this movie will rock 2014, and read the book because it is an awesome book.

Review: ¨Prisoners¨

Review: ¨Prisoners¨

I was dying to watch this movie, because I loved the trailer and I love Hugh Jackman, (Keller Dover), and I love Jake Gyllenhaal, (Detective Loki).

While watching the trailer, I thought that this movie would be an intense thriller, and I wasn’t wrong. I liked it. It is an intense thriller. Which I enjoyed it. I only thought it was very long and slow. I thought the movie was taking four hours to finish, but when it did finished I couldn’t get enough. I wanted more and more.

The movie is about Keller Dover’s, (Jackman), daughter. She is kidnapped, and that’s when the real intense moments starts. As I said this movie is slow, but it provides amazing acting from the part of the cast, and it is a privileged cast. It also provides special moments of excitement and rush. That kind of rush that fulfills your body, asking for more. And that is what every movie should cause. That emotion of desire.

So, I thought it was a very enjoyable film, even though it could have been a little bit more fast on the details. But whatever, I’m no good at gathering details and not even understanding them. But I recommend this one, if you are looking for a slow-paced-but-awesome-kind-of-film this is the one.

7.5 out of 10 stars!

Review: “Thor: The Dark World”

First of all, I’m not going to make this movie feel like poop. The first one…probably…but that’s not the point right now.
The point right now is how this movie entertained me. I really enjoyed it. There was a part of the movie that caught me a little bit bored, but then it picked me up with emotion and excitement.

Tom Hiddleston as Loki, is the funniest thing I’ve ever seen. I’m not saying that is a joke, his character is funny. Even though he is a villain he is one of my favorite Marvel characters. And trust me.. I have large list of favorite characters. I’m going to miss him for a long time.

The special effects were outstanding. I’m glad that this time Malekith, (villain), decided to attack London and not America… because everything happens in America… (pretty stupid point, sorry…).

“Thor: The Dark World”, entertains you to a point that it can no longer entertain, and if I said it was boring sometimes, I apologize. Thor is not my favorite hero in Marvel, but the movie changed my mind I think…

It gives you entertainment, action, fun moments, and a twisted-more-likely-what-is-going-on ending.

Watch it, you won’t regret it.

8 out of 10 stars!

Review: “Gravity”

My first thought about the movie while watching the trailer was; “Extremely exaggerated”. And then reading the reviews about the movie in Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), which were good. It got me wanting to see the movie. And it surprised me.

I am speechless about Sandra Bullock’s performance in the movie. About the way that she basically led the entire film. She was splendid. So was George Clooney, he kept the balance of the movie. He was the funny character. While Sandra Bullock, was the survival character. And the gravity, the destruction itself.

The special effects left me breathless. But what I most liked about this movie was the emotion that caused to me. Hopelessness and despair. All at once. It was like I was inside the movie. Feeling the same thing as Sandra Bullock was feeling. Like I was an invisible character, right there. And I’m sure I wasn’t the only one. I am amazed that Alfonso Cuarón accomplished that.

But answer me that… how would you feel being alone in space, with no oxygen, with no communication and God knows how many kilometers apart from gravity and earth? I rather die. Seriously.

I find it funny when people come to me and say that this movie “sucks”, but the truth is that they don’t get the perfection of it. I’m glad that I got to experienced one of the best movies made in space, and if not the best.

One thing is for sure, I will get very angry if Sandra Bullock doesn’t win the Oscar for Best Actress. She deserves it.

10 out of 10 stars!

Just…Written Papers!

Just...Written Papers!

YA novels. Yes! Everyone, (most people), enjoy a good book. And who, (again…most people), doesn’t?

I remember the time that I hated to read, and now I thank God and my mother, that I love to read. Everything comes with reading and then picturing the characters and the surroundings of that marvelous book. But, there’s one thing…Just ONE thing…that could or couldn’t ruined it all…MOVIES.

I love movies, if I didn’t why would I own a blog about that topic? But I love to read and when I read a book, I casually ask myself if this piece of art, turns into a movie, “Who would be the actors to play the characters?” But lately, I’ve realized that since “Harry Potter” or “The Lord of The Rings” is not on the movie theater, production companies started to buy the rights for each book like crazy. And come on people, if you are going to ruin a book who has a fan base behind it, don’t buy the rights. Because we, fans, would love to see the books that we love coming to “real life”. And if you ruin it, we will hunt you down and kill you. Like some people did with “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones”, “Beautiful Creatures”, “Twilight”, (even though it was a terrible book to start with). But fans love their books and they want their books to be successful. How would you like to read a book, and you love it and suddenly that book turns into a shitty movie, and you keep thinking, “Why would they do that?” or “Now I feel stupid, because everyone will criticize my book” , but that’s okay you just need to punch them really hard on the face…so they’ll stop talking.

I’m happy to see that a trilogy that I’ve read has turned into a major film, yep, I’m talking about “The Hunger Games”. And I’m proud to say to people, “Hey, I’ve read that book, and you should do it too.”

There is one book that I’ve read and I really love it and I think everyone should read it. It’s called “Divergent”. I’m anxious and scared to watch the movie, but I am expecting something great. Not only because there are amazing actors in that movie, (Kate Winslet, I’m talking to you. But Theo, Shailene, Maggie Q,… okay! I loved the ENTIRE cast! And the director.)

I don’t actually know what my point is in this post, I really don’t. I just wanted to let my opinion out. And my opinion is… Don’t buy the rights to a book if you are going to turn it into a dreadful, awful, hideous movie.

Just one more thing, click at the photo of “Divergent” to watch the trailer. It’s good, but they could have done it a better trailer. So expect the second trailer because I just can’t wait. But click on it and watch it.
